This park has a nice walking trial. The scenery and vegetation were pleasantly surprising. The park wasn't crowded but there were people out walking and relaxing in the park.

Loose Park is a large park with plenty of room for walking, having picnics, relaxing, etc. They have a small playground for younger children. I'm there usually to walk and relax. Occasionally, we've taken a lunch and had a picnic.
